About this author

Don is a 1968 graduate of Madison Central High School in Madison, South Dakota. He graduated from Dakota State University in Madison in 1972 with a degree in secondary education. After moving to Washington State in 1981, Don studied computer programming and turned his writing efforts to software. After twenty-five of IT work, Don's passion for writing flared up again, and the doctors couldn't do anything to cure it.
After publishing 20 Christian books (19 novels), Donald turned his attention to Christian movies. 7 of the scripts he has written or co-written have been made into films. In addition, Donald has been the producer of five movies and acted in nine films.


I just interviewed Jeff Gerke owner of Marcher Lord Press at http://tinyurl.com/3ucacgn MLP specializes in Christian speculative fiction.

Joyner's books are not written to entertain- but rather to give light. However as he shows us some deeper truths about our journey as Christians - if we choose to follow - Joyner edutains. I hope my books do the same.

I enjoyed this book very much. I got some answers to questions I have had for a long time. it kept me interested and I will be reading more of Mr. Joyner books

“You talk like Jean. She says that we shouldn't make plans
and then pray for God to bless those plans, but rather ask Him
what His will is and what we need to do to help carry it out.”
Donald James Parker

“Judy laughed. "Hallelujah, the blind saw!”
Donald James Parker, Love Waits

“I think deep down that's what all of us want is love. All the
other stuff we go through is just an attempt to find that love.
Money, power, fame, all that garbage is just to help us get that love
we need. And the ultimate in love is God's love.”
Donald James Parker, Love Waits

“As much as I like it when a book I'm writing speeds along, the downside can be that an author becomes too eager to finish and rushes the end. The end is even more important than the first page, and rushing can damage it.”
David Morrell

“And let me tell you - carrying sad memories will wear you out. You've got to put them down walk away. Do whatever you must to put emotional space between yourself and your past. That's the only way you're going to make it through.”
Angela Elwell Hunt, The Note

“Our town was known for two things--no, three: salted fish, expertly dyed fabrics, and corruption.”
Angela Elwell Hunt, Magdalene

“I've never been one to mourn the passing of what could have been a promising relationship. When Jeff Knave broke my heart in the ninth grade, I decided then and there that if a guy couldn't see that I was something special, I'd say good-bye with no regrets. Not that I think I'm more special than anyone else, mind you. But if a thing is not meant to be, I figure it's just not part of God's infinite plan.”
Angela Elwell Hunt, The Velvet Shadow

“Darwinism by itself did not produce the Holocaust, but without Darwinism... neither Hitler nor his Nazi followers would have had the necessary scientific underpinnings to convince themselves and their collaborators that one of the worlds greatest atrocities was really morally praiseworthy.”

Adrienna Okay. Glad you found it and got your email too. Thanks. Wow, you are writing a series anti-Twilight, how could this be? Tell me more. I tried to read the series and did not care for it...up to the third of the series and stopped reading since. This would be wonderful. I hope to work on my Guardian Watch Series, supernatural fiction/fantasy/sci-fi. I prefer supernatural, but you have to shelf books also under their categories!


Christine Hi Donald, stopped by to see what's new on your page. Have a great week.
